Very rare map of Alaska (America Russa) and the contiguous parts of Canada and the US, extending to the Upper Missoury River and the Fraser River. The map is one of the earliest printed maps to focus on the region which would become Alaska and includes an ornate fine engraving style, characterstic of Italian maps of the period. Includes a number of early placenames and nice detail, especially in the Arctic Sea, which is named Mar Gelato Artico. From Marmocchi's Geografia Commerciale. The first example of the map we have ever seen.
